Worth noting

• Jim Thome, on the 15-day disabled list since July 31 due to a herniated disc, will leave the team at some point during the current homestead to continue his rehab at home in Illinois for a few days. Showalter said the next step from there will be either a return to Baltimore or a trip to Sarasota, as Thome hopes to stay with the club as much as possible.

• Jason Hammel threw from 120 feet on Tuesday, and Showalter said all went well and Hammel is expected to be with the team on Saturday. The right-hander has yet to throw off of a mound, but has half-mound work scheduled for the next couple of days. Hammel has been on the DL since July 15 with a right knee injury that required surgery.

• Adam Jones was presented with the Heart and Hustle Award in a pregame ceremony on Wednesday at Camden Yards. The Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association selects a preliminary award winner from each MLB team, with a final winner to be announced on November 13.

• The Orioles have won 11 consecutive one-run games since June 22, one shy of a franchise record. They are 22-6 in one-run games this season.

• The O's have played seven games that went 12 or more innings this year, going 6-1 in those contests. They have won 12 consecutive extra-inning games, and are also 10-3 in games following extra innings.
